- Safe & comfortable design
We help heal.
This facemask has a hydrophilic plastic coating that rapidly absorbs aerosol droplets away from the outer surface of the mask. Safe and comfortable design. Meets the ASTM F2100-11 medical face mask material requirement for level 3 high barrier performance.
This surgical facemask inactivates 99.99% of tested strains of influenza viruses on five minutes contact with the surface of the facemask in laboratory (in-vitro) tests against the following seasonal, pandemic, avian, swine, and equine influenza viruses: influenza A subtypes and strains: H1N1 (the 2009 pandemic flu subtype A/California/07/09, A/Brisbane/59/2007, A/Wisconsin/10/98, A/New Jersey/8/76, A/PR/8/38), H3N2 (A/Brisbane/10/2007, A/Wisconsin/67/2005), H2N2 (A/2/Japan/305/57); the bird flu subtypes: H5N1 (NIBRG-14), H9N2 (A/Turkey/Wisconsin/1966), H5N2 (A/Duck/PA/10218/84); the swine flu subtype: H1N1 (A/Swine/1976/31); the equine flu subtype; H3N8 (A/Equine/2/Miami/63); and influenza B strains: (B/Florida/4/2006, B/Lee/40), under tested contact conditions. Correlation between in-vitro testing results and any clinical event has not been tested. No clinical studies have been conducted comparing the ability of an untreated facemask and these facemasks to protect the wearer from influenza infection. They are intended to be worn by operating room personnel during surgical procedures, to protect both the surgical patient, and the operating room personnel, from the transfer of micro-organisms, body fluids and particulate material.
